    Oh, they're special... short bus special this year...

    Honestly, they were playing a great game on ST right up to the point they gave up that TD.
    The Kick off and punt coverage and really been spot on up to that point.
    It's amazing how 10 seconds can swing opinions on performance so wildly.
    Unfortunately, that's the responsibility that comes with that job, you have to be good every time, not just most times.
    The true measure of a man is what he'd do knowing he'd never be found out.

    And in only 9 games. It looks like we might just rewrite the record book on this stat.

    I think we can pretty much take it to the bank.

    You can't go from playing solid to giving up a big return at crucial times in the game. These guys are going to cause alot of heart palpitations down the road... Shore it up jeeeez..... :-

    our special teams are brutal and they have been since the begining of the season. with out all those special teams touchdowns against us our record could easily be 6-3

    Lots of starters already do play on ST.
    Hell, Ced Griffin was playing gunner yesterday, and doing a fabulous job of running right past the punt returner.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
